Boreham Wood are delighted to announce the arrival of Danny Elliott to the LV BET Stadium Meadow Park, following a successful season in the National League North with Boston United.
The 26-year-old will have a point to prove after his previous spell in the top tier of non-league of football, and offers plenty of goals after his season at Boston. Born in Nottingham, Elliott began his career in the academies of Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa before moving to America at the age of 19, where he played college soccer with Hofstra Pride, as well as spending time with the North Carolina under 23’s and the Long Island Rough Riders. His spell in the United States came to an end after five years as he returned to Europe to join Spanish fourth division side CP San Cristóbal, where he remained for three months prior to ending his absence from England.
The forward signed for then-League Two outfit Port Vale on a deal until the end of the 2018/19 season where he featured a handful of times, but later dropped into the National League North in search of regular opportunities when he joined Chester. He would depart on loan to Alfreton Town in January 2019 where he scored five goals in five games including a hat-trick on his debut in a 6-1 victory over Gloucester City and returned to the Deva Stadium as a result, ending the campaign with three goals in 21 games with the club also being knocked out of the play-offs to Altrincham. He would notch an improved eight goals in 22 appearances in the following season before departing Chester, making the switch to National League side Hartlepool United after COVID-19 halted the League campaign at step 2 and below…
Despite playing just seven times in all competitions, Elliott featured in a successful play-off campaign that saw the Pools achieve promotion with a penalty shootout victory over Torquay United in which he scored his spot-kick. A move to Boston saw him enjoy a dream season though, with 31 goals in all competitions helping the Pilgrims qualify for the play-offs including 19 in the National League North, making him the fifth highest scorer in the division, before notching 3 goals in 3 games during the end of season play-offs. Although Boston would be denied by York City in the final, Elliott was rewarded for his individual feats as he was named Fans’ and Players’ Player of the Year.
Danny will be keen to make the step up to the National League and continuing his fine form at the LV BET Stadium Meadow Park next season, as the Wood look to improve on last season’s 9th placed finish.
Welcome to the LV BET Stadium Meadow Park, Danny!
